Free dementia advice event at Pear Tree Court

May 24th 2018

 

Pear Tree Court is inviting the local community to a free event for families caring for those living with dementia.

On Tuesday 5th June, from 2pm-4pm, the team at Pear Tree Court will open the doors to the care home for its Understanding Dementia event.

Renowned dementia specialist, Dr Nori Graham, will be on hand to help people understand what it is like to live with dementia. There will also be support and practical advice on what dementia is and how memories are lost, as well as useful tips on how to overcome communication barriers.

After the event there will be a Q&A session and an opportunity to meet the team at Pear Tree Court, as well as take a closer look at the care home.

Home manager, Ray Arnold, said: “Here at Pear Tree Court, we strongly believe professional knowledge, insight and shared experiences can make a real difference to the everyday lives of those looking after a loved one living with dementia.  

“The aim of the event is to help people discover positive approaches to caring for loved ones and to support them to lead independent and fulfilled lives. 

“We are looking forward to welcoming local people of Horndean for what promises to be an interesting and inspiring afternoon of information and guidance.”
